The release date for Succession season 3 has finally been confirmed and there’s not long to wait before the Roys are back terrorising anyone who gets in their way.

The new series is set to arrive on Sunday, October 17, on HBO Max, with the cast members sharing the exciting news on social media.

‘OCTOBER 17TH THE ROYS AND ONE HIRSH RETURN!’ Cousin Greg star Nicholas Braun enthused on Instagram.

The launch date comes just weeks after the gripping trailer arrived, which showed media mogul Logan (played by Brian Cox) losing his cool, resulting in him having to be held back by several people in an office.

‘He’s our dad, but he was going to send me to jail. He’d do the same to all of us,’ Kendall says behind his father’s back, blatantly trying to convince the other members of their family not to trust him.

The upcoming episodes will see the patriarch as he attempts to convince the members of his clan to back him, as they conspire behind the scenes to claim power for themselves.

Filming for season three got underway late last year, with fans patiently waiting for over two years since the second chapter aired.

The series stars Cox alongside the likes of Jeremy Strong (Kendall Roy), Sarah Snook (Shiv Roy), Kieran Culkin (Roman Roy) and Alan Ruck (Connor Roy), as well as Nicholas Braun (Cousin Greg), Matthew Macfadyen (Tom Wambsgans) and J. Smith-Cameron (Gerri Kellman).
